...I'm referring to the year 2011 and my first completed project of the new year. My year ended sharing time and much sewing lingo with friends - Ebony and Lisa - and this is how the evening went:
. we had snacks while we enjoyed a round of show and tell. We all LOVE show and tell - its informative as well as inspirational. It's all about showing what we've created since out last meet up, providing information on patterns-fabric-sewing techniques, and answering all the questions that follow. Believe me, show and tell is a real learning experience for each of us.
. Afterwards we had a nice little potluck dinner, and
. then settled in for a evening of sewing and related talk. To be honest, I never actually get much actual sewing done during our sessions - I guess I talk too much (lol).
I did complete my first project for 2012 this evening; which by the way has nothing to do with my Fall Hit List (I must get back on that thing!). A couple of days before Christmas while cruising the web I happened upon a cute little pattern that I could not resist from Fashion Patterns by Coni.
It's a spiral wrap & I'm in love with it! I swear this thing can be wrapped at least 10 different ways - probably more. It's so easy to make taking only 2 yards of fabric; and can be made from almost any fabric. The hardest part about it was deciding what fabric to use. I settled for a brown patterned ponteroma because I wanted it to be warm with just the right amount of drape. Had my serger not UN-threaded itself - the wrap would have taken only 45 minutes to complete start to finish. I'm thinking about making this up again in a black light weight double knit. Mmmmm, we will see. In the mean time Happy, healthy, prosperous New Year to one and all.
I'm off to hit that list again...
